If you’re unlucky, your PC will go to sleep and never wake up until you cycle the power, and lose what you were doing. Right after doing something, it draws 4mA, but after less than a minute of inactivity it drops back to its 1mA snooze mode. If you want something small and light to carry around and plug into, say, keyboardless servers lurking in cupboards, or your natty little Saint Song Espresso or Cappucino pocket-PC, this thing’s just right.

Not many people can spend that long in their easy chair. See all condition definitions – opens in a new window or tab Is albedo one of the criteria you employ when evaluating computer components?
But recently, they’ve started making these little ones. Well, it probably does; some PCs will try to go into Hibernate mode instead, I think. Overall These are all good products. Right after doing something, it draws 4mA, but after less than a minute of inactivity it drops back to its 1mA snooze mode. You can end up having to deliberately bind no function to the buttons you can’t help clicking every time you touch the darn thing.
This side also has the two “mouse” buttons. Anyway, there are various other colour and plug permutations. There’s no numeric keypad, there’s no T-arrangement of cursor keys they’re on the bottom rank next to the shrunken space barand the F-key row is slightly miniaturised.
And it’d look good on a cramped reception desk, too, as long as your receptionist either doesn’t have to do a lot of typing, or doesn’t mind doing it on a cheapo laptop ‘board. This is pretty much entirely because its design is Back to home page. As with various other “couch keyboards”, this one includes a mouse function as well.
Add to watch list. To make the keyboard look less like an escaped laptop component, Ortek have added a row of 14 little round buttons at the top. Their product page is here. The three wicked witches are Wake, Sleep and Power. Unless, of course, you need a numeric keypad. Or, of course, just a stab at the power button; ATX-compliant machines should interpret that as a shutdown command.
The Wake key isn’t actually particularly evil; it’s just dumb, because pressing any key should wake up an ATX machine that’s in standby.
That means it needs line of sight between the two transmitter LEDs under the dark plastic cover on the back of the keyboard and its receiver unit – but, like many remote controls, it’s not very touchy about alignment of the two components, mfk long as they’re not too far apart.
Flat minimum is less than three days, but that assumes you’re sitting there with your thumb on the TrackPoint scooting mc, cursor mindlessly around the screen non-stop.
If you press the Sleep key by accident, tough luck. Do you have a shiny silver PC and want peripherals to match?

How long the batteries will last with the keyboard in actual use is hard to say, because it depends on how much you do with it. The Power key makes up for the Wake key’s innocuousness, though.
Once again, you’ve got to press the “Fn” button to swap the function of a block of keys, if you want keypad functions. For additional information, see the Global Shipping Program terms and conditions – opens in a new window or tab.

But, again, if you just want something shiny, it’s highly recommended. Email klwvye friends Share on Facebook – opens in a new window or tab Share on Twitter – opens in a new window or tab Share on Pinterest – opens in a klavhe window or tab Add to watch list.
But this one, at least, has no obvious traps. As is the Zippy Technology keyboard, if cable-free operation matters to you. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. Windows won’t do that, and there are various other, safer ways to access the shutdown procedure, anyway. Or an abnormal one.
